The mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala remains vigorous in his attempts to revitalize the San Siro renovation project.
The stadium saga has been a major headache for both Inter Milan and AC Milan over the past few years.
The two rivals launched a shared project in 2019, aiming to demolish the current Giuseppe Meazza Stadium and build a modern one in its stead.
However, a wave of bureaucratic hurdles hindered their plans. The authorities eventually placed a constraint preventing the clubs from tearing down the current stadium due to its historical and cultural significance.
This prompted Milan and Inter to head in separate directions with each club planning to build its own new ground in different areas in the outskirts of Milano.
Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala Hoping To Keep Inter Milan & AC Milan At San Siro
The Nerazzurri chose Rozzano to host their new home, while the Rossoneri opted for the San Donato region.
Nevertheless, Milano mayor Sala is still desperate to keep the two Serie A giants within the city walls.
The municipality of Milano is looking to work its way around the restriction imposed on the stadium. They came up with a new plan to renovate the San Siro and will be looking to convince the two clubs.
“I am convinced that it’s still an open game,” said Sala as reported by ANSA via FcInterNews.
“This is a very important step for the future of the stadium.”
The plan would reportedly cost 300 million euros. The Milano municipality should explain it in detail to Inter and Milan in an attempt to win their approval and avoid what would be a costly exodus for the city of Milano from economic and social perspectives.
